Yellow ribbon or not, treat people fairly

Make your Christmas a little greener
Considering the pride Rosemount takes in its Irish heritage, going green should be second nature. And there are a number of projects going on around town that demonstrate just how easy it can be to reduce your impact on the environment. Rosemount's Fairview Clinic recently received...

Church made the right choice for its members
Community of Hope Church apparently stirred up some negative reaction with its decision, effective earlier this month, to withdraw from the Evangelical Lutheran Churches of America. The church probably expected as much. We do not necessarily agree with Community of Hope's decision...

Editorial: Check this out
I've spent more time in libraries over the past month than I did in the nearly 12 years since I graduated from college. From a story about the increased use libraries are seeing in a down economy to ongoing coverage of Rosemount's new library all of a sudden the lending and borrowing...

Editor's Columnl: Apostrophe catastrophe

Opinion: Primary holds plenty of local interest
Primary elections like the one that will take place next Tuesday in Rosemount rarely draw much attention from voters. It's understandable, we suppose. The elections, coming less than two months before the real thing in November, don't really decide anything final. They narrow fields....

Opinion: What makes a good administrator?
Next Thursday the Rosemount City Council will ask residents what qualities they value in a city administrator. We're going to take our chance now to provide our input. Rosemount's new city administrator needs to be good with people. Maybe that seems obvious, but it's hardly a given....

Editorial: Endres is a bad neighbor for Rosemount
